Earth to Enjoyment
The water, grains, fruits, vegetables, and microflora from our surroundings capture the character of Wheatland. Because we’re determined to make the best possible beer we can, we use as many ingredients from our area as possible. This focus on using nearby agricultural products, in turn, reflects Wheatland and its region.
Wheatland Spring collects water from a private well that only supplies the brewery — a single source hundreds of feet below our fields. This water forms the basis for all of the beer we make.
We’re growing 18 acres of wheat in our fields. The rest of our grains come mostly from two, small batch regional maltsters, who source their grains from small-scale farmers in Virginia and North Carolina.
Fruits and Vegetables
We’ve established vegetables and herbs on the farm for use in beer. In addition to our own produce, neighboring farms grow outstanding, sustainably-produced fruits and vegetables that we use.
We are thankful to be surrounded by a thriving, sustainable agricultural community. Beyond our neighboring farms’ excellent offerings, they also contribute to the availability of microflora in our local environment. Some of these microflora have been wild-captured in our wheat fields and are being developed into Wheatland Spring Farm + Brewery yeast strains, producing beers that only exist in Wheatland, Virginia.
